Next night would be my pick. 1971 is good for newbs because the sound is rich, Pigpen is in great form, and the heady jams only go so deep before coming back to the theme. That said, the spacey jams here are heavy and among the best ever.

For that post-hiatus sound, why not just try the Red Rocks masterpiece, 7/8/78? I don't think you'll get any complaints.

Seems we've had this conversation before, and I have to admit the 4/28 show is right up there. But can you really go wrong with any of the shows from that 5 day Fillmore run?

Well since you asked... I'm actually not a huge fan of 4/27. The Beach Boys kind of kill it for me. I'll take 4/28 and 4/29(!) all day over that one.

OP should have his friend listen to the jam that starts with Alligator.

However, Tell makes a good point. Perhaps it's best to think of albums rather than shows at first. Beauty and Workingman's are great ones to start with.
